SHELL Chooses the YETI Trailer Snow and Ice Remover

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - March 13, 2014) - SHELL, one of the largest integrated oil companies has acquired the YETI truck snow and ice remover. The YETI removes snow on trailer roofs, regardless of the quantity or density of the snowpack. It's the most effective automated snow and ice removal system for trailers, containers and flatbeds.

The SHELL lubricant facility in Brockville had many challenges. Truck drivers were refusing to climb on trailer roofs to clear the snow, and scaffolding equipment only delayed a dangerous cleaning process. This had a negative effect on customer service and clients complained of late deliveries. After looking at available products, the YETI became the only viable solution to SHELL. It's extremely easy to use and very driver friendly.

According to Ken Saigle, Engineer for SHELL Lubricants: "We chose the YETI against a scraper type machine because it offers many unsurpassed benefits: safety comes first, truck drivers are happy not to climb on roofs anymore and the safety board is happy. The YETY is fully automatic since a driver starts the YETI at the push of one button so down time is minimal, deliveries are made on time and our customers are happy. All and all the YETI is the best trailer snow removal solution."


Today's YETI is the result of many years of R&D and ingenuity by a dedicated team of technicians from Industries B. Rainville Inc. The team is continuously working on improving the YETI to ensure that it always meets the requirements of the road transport industry. For information, contact: Rejean Pomerleau, 1-877-347-5521.
